A northwest suburban high school student in District 214 has died, likely of COVID-19, and at least one other student is in the ICU due to the virus, Superintendent David Schuler announced Saturday.

The student died last week “likely due to complications related to COVID-19,” Schuler wrote in an update to families.

“While we may be seeing a plateau in confirmed cases and deaths related to COVID-19 in Illinois, this is a dark week in District 214 that leaves me with an incredibly heavy heart,” the statement continues.

“We will continue to move forward to see the sunrise again one day; however, this week in our District is marked by pain and sadness. My family’s thoughts and prayers are with these families and all members of our District’s school community during this global pandemic.”

District 214 is based in northwest suburban Arlington Heights and covers several schools including Buffalo Grove High School, John Hersey High School, Elk Grove High School and Rolling Meadows High School.
